Box 23, Local; or hourglass again, in a ve to four decision made Wednesday, Supreme Court justices have thwarted the will of the people. This time it was the people of Louisiana that has (or had) the death penalty for raping a child under 12. The penalty applied even if the child’s death was not a result of the rape. The court ruled that child rapists cannot be executed saying that capital punishment applies only to cases in which the victim is murdered. An animal by the name of Patrick Kennedy was convicted in Louisiana of raping his 8-year-old stepdaughter. The girl suffered such serious internal injuries that she required extensive surgery to repair the damage.A bottom-feeding defense attorney who brought the case before the court hailed the decision, saying that he hoped the money Louisiana had spent on ghting his lawsuit would now be put to better use.By better use he meant the funds should be allocated to treatment of victims of sexual abuse Maybe if it wasn’t for attorneys like him who defended monsters, there wouldn’t be so many victims of sexual abuse, especially children. If a child of ve, six, eight or however old is raped but not killed, do you really think that child hasn’t lost his or her life? How can any child who has endured that kind of horror hope to have a normal life? How could they ever trust anyone again? Think of the physical and mental suffering a child must go through. I can’t even imagine it. And even though a child isn’t killed, think of the injuries to a little body from forcible rape. A girl raped at such a young age may never be able to have children as a result. She may never be able have a normal sex life in her adult years. Three of the justices who made this terrible ruling wrote that ‘while acknowledging the victim’s fright, sense of betrayal and severe injuries, punishment must not exceed evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.’ Decency? They have the nerve to make a ruling like this and then talk about decency? If a society has ‘progressed’ to the point that child rape is just another crime and not deserving of death, then that’s a society which has lost its way. The justices also said that, ‘we conclude there is a national consensus against capital punishment for the crime of child rape. National consensus? Just what people are included in this national consensus beside lawyers and judges who sit in gated communities and send their children to safe, private schools. They can afford to be liberal, kind and ‘progressive’. The rest of us have to try and guard our children the best we can while the predators walk among us after serving their time, free to commit more heinous crimes against the most helpless of all — trusting, innocent children. You see, there is seldom just one victim. For each rapist, there can be tens or hundreds of silent victims. For the rapist it is over, and he may spend a few years in jail, but the child and parents have received a life sentence of trying to put the pieces back together again. Once shattered, the child is never completely whole again. Were they included in that consensus? At least a dozen states that have laws calling for repeat sadistic To the person or persons that decided my wife’s ceramic mushrooms and small wrought Iron bike with old man and women would look better somewere else, and removed it from our porch. I put the display up on our front patio with some owers trying to brighten up the area only to have somebody split up her collection. It would be appreciated if someone returned them (no questions asked).

Friday, June 27, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Then Now By Dan AdlerInterim ManagerAccording to some versions of Kwaj history and some old-time residents, Macy’s has been in operation on Kwajalein since 1952. That is — until 1 p.m., this past Monday. Macys closed the doors forever in advance of AAFES taking over the retail operations on island. Residents stopped in for some shopping and to say goodbye. Macy’s follows the Yokwe Yuk Club and Ten-Ten Store into history. “It’s the end of an era,” said resident Tom Shahan. “It’s too bad, but time goes on.” Long-time Kwajalein resident Jimmy Matsunaga said, “It’s terrible. Really sad. Macy’s served the community well for so many years.” Doreen Matsunaga added, “Macy’s had a lot of good memories. Ten-Ten closing is sad too,” Resident Mary Stone said she didn’t really shop that much. “I think people are more interested in the food court that’s coming. I guess we’ll just wait and see what happens,” she said. Resident Celso Corres, who was shopping for last minute bargains, has been on Kwajalein for 18 years. “It’s sad to see so many old things go,” he said. Right, residents shop at Macy’s in 1996.

CYS is providing camp services using in-house staff resources this summer. Although an outside provider was contracted for the past several years to run summer activities, this year’s budgeting dif culties prevented that option. Historically, Community Services has provided the service to Kwaj families staying on island for the summer. According to CYS, the Kwaj Kids’ Camp program includes outdoor activities, sports, board games, photography, sandcastle building, swimming, arts and crafts, field trips and special interest clubs. All CYS-registered youth in Grades K-6 are eligible. Current health physicals and immunization records are required to register. Visiting children may participate with an approved exception to policy and required health documents. The camp began on June 17 and will run through Aug. 16. Parents wishing their children to attend the camp must register and make advance payment one week prior to the session their children will participate in. Registration must be for a minimum of one weekly session. One-day sign ups are not available. Refunds will not be given for non-attendance or partially attended sessions. If more than one child is attending the same session(s), a 20 percent discount is available. The weekly fee is based on family income as follows: • Category I ($0-28,000) — $36 per week. • Category II ($28,001-34,000) $60 per week • Category III ($34,001-44,000) $72 per week • Category IV ($44,001-55,000) $84 per week • Category V ($55,001-70,000) $95 per week • Category VI ($70,000 or more) $107 per week. For more information about the camp and registration, contact CYS at 52158.

Friday, June 27, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 8Iraq violence drops to four-year lowBy Fred W. Baker IIIAmerican Forces Press Service Violence in Iraq dropped in May to its lowest level in four years, according to a Defense Department report released to Congress Monday. The quarterly report, required by Congress, measured progress in the country in March through May of this year. The report highlighted that all major violent indicators dropped during the reporting period by as much as 80 percent. “Coalition and Iraqi forces’ operations against al-Qaida in Iraq have degraded its ability to attack and terrorize the population,” the report reads. The report concedes, though, that al-Qaida still remains a major threat, and that the recent progress is still “fragile, reversible and uneven.” Civilian deaths in May dropped to a two-year low. The report suggests that even the high-pro le bombings that drove up civilian deaths in April are having less of an effect at inciting sectarian violence than other such attacks in the past. The report hails the emergence of the Sons of Iraq, local security groups made up of citizens, as the most signi cant development in the past 18 months in Iraq. More than 100,000 Iraqi citizens now help to provide security for their towns, villages and neighborhoods, and the program has spread from primarily a Sunni initiative to Shiia and mixed communities as well. The report also credits the Iraqi government’s success at ghting illegal militias and Iranian-backed groups with contributing to lower levels of violence. The government’s efforts have reinforced a greater public rejection of the militias, according to the report. “Overall, the communal struggle for power and resources is becoming less violent,” according to the report. “Many Iraqis are now settling their differences through debate and the political process, rather than open con ict.” Iraqi security forces have continued to improve, although at varying rates. The report cites Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki’s military drive in Basra as generating a positive response from all Iraqi communities. “Despite some initial dif culties and the uneven performance of local police, Iraqi forces won the support of most Basrawis and a greater share of the Iraqi population,” the report reads. The report also notes that in many areas Iraqi forces are operating independently, or side-by-side with coalition forces, and that the Iraqi government is assuming a broader ownership of its security programs. “These units consistently demonstrate a high level of pro ciency in counterinsurgency operations against [al-Qaida in Iraq] and other extremist groups,” the report reads. Iran’s support of extremist groups in Iraq is now the country’s biggest security challenge, according to the report. “Despite promises to Iraqi government to the contrary, Iran continues to fund, train, arm, and guide [Jaysh al-Mahdi] special groups and other Shiia extremist organizations,” the report says. Iraqi forces have uncovered “massive” weapons caches and ammunition of Iranian origin, some manufactured as recently as this year, the report notes.

Annual total: 32.20 inches Annual deviation: -4.40 inchesCall 54700 for updated forecasts or visit RULING from Page 2 child rapists to be executed have vowed to ght this ruling. An attorney for the state of Alabama called child rape ‘manifest evil.’ I couldn’t agree with him more. This is just another case of power-hungry judges who want to show the rest of us just how powerful and important they are and we can go to hell as far as they’re concerned. I don’t believe they care one iota whether this is a safe nation for children to grow up in. Children who are attacked in such a brutal, unspeakable manner may not have been murdered, but make no mistake, most of them are dead inside. They have lost their innocence and their trust. They have lost their right to live a life not marred by such horror. Shouldn’t monsters who take those things from a child pay the ultimate penalty? This should not be left to the states to ght alone. Congress should immediately get to work drafting legislation that can get by judges who seem to have forgotten what justice is all about. How can they make a ruling like this and call it justice? I am saddened that the highest court in the land has told child rapists they don’t have to worry about the death penalty even if they brutally rape a child as long as the child is not killed.The next time a little girl or boy is raped and so severely injured that he or she requires surgery and screams with nightmares and will never be the same again, those ve judges should have to watch every minute of it and then tell that child the monster who did it deserves to live.
